Midweek Storm Threatens Tri-State With Snow, Wind, Coastal Flooding

    Steve Villanueva's late evening forecast for Monday, March 4. (Published Monday, March 4, 2013)

    A storm is threatening the tri-state Thursday, with two weather models showing two different outcomes for our area.

    One model brings the storm up the East Coast and the other keeps it south and pushes it out to sea.

    So the tri-state could see either light rain, snow and wind, or a heavier version of that.

    With the heavier model, the potential exists for several inches of snow in the city and over a foot of snow in areas north and west of the city, like Nanuet and Monticello. There could also be wind gusts of up to 60 mph and minor to moderate coastal flooding, with beach erosion along ocean-facing beaches and the twin forks of Long Island. 

    Storm Team 4 is tracking the models. To get the latest forecasts and radar, stay with us here.
